26 Sep ONE FAN, ONE CAN!
The Huddersfield Town Foundation and the Huddersfield Town Supporters Association (HTSA), â€˜Fans for Foodbanksâ€™ initiative returns on Saturday!
The â€˜Fans for Foodbanksâ€™ appeal returns to the John Smithsâ€™ Stadium on Saturday 28 September for the game against Millwall.
Huddersfield Town Foundation and HTSA â€˜One Fan, One Canâ€™ campaign for the â€˜Fans for Foodbanksâ€™ initiative collected over 630 items at the Sheffield Wednesday fixture.
This has enabled the local foodbanks to provide a weeksâ€™ worth of food for over 22 people!
The Huddersfield Town Foundation and HTSA would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to fans who support this campaign for their generosity.
Supporters are urged to bring donations to the Millwall â€˜Fans for Foodbanksâ€™ collection, to continue making a beneficial impact for those in need.
The Huddersfield Town Foundation and HTSA will be splitting the â€˜Fans for Foodbanksâ€™ donations for the Millwall fixture between Batley Foodbank and The Welcome Centre â€“ with both foodbanks in desperate need of donations, currently with empty shelves.
There will be three collection points at the John Smithâ€™s Stadium for supporters to make their donations; one at the Stadium Health & Fitness Club entrance, one by the players entrance, near the South End of The Core Stand and an additional collection point for corporate guests inside the John Smithâ€™s Stadium reception entrance.
All donations are welcomed with the foodbanks desperately requiring:
â€“ Tinned meat / fish
â€“ Pasta Sauces
â€“ Tinned tomatoes
â€“ Tinned potatoes
â€“ Breakfast cereal
â€“ Coffee / Tea
â€“ Packets of mash
â€“ Tinned soup
â€“ Packets of cup a soup
The branded bins will be in situ from 1pm up until kick-off and fans are asked to bring along any long shelf life food they wish to donate â€“ unfortunately, we cannot accept fresh foods.
All donations from the game will be split between Batley Foodbank and The Welcome Centre for distributions in the local community for those who require assistance.
The food donations will be organised and distributed by Huddersfield Town Foundation staff and HTSA members to the foodbanks at the Johnâ€™s Smith Stadium on Wednesday 2 October at 11am. The Town Foundation and HTSA would appreciate any volunteers wishing to help assist with this process.
